Redwood Restaurant and Bar (7121 Betehesda Lane) has announced the return of its outdoor Oktoberfest event after a successful first run last year.
About 1,300 came out to try craft beers and food from Bethesda Row restaurants, said Redwood’s Amanda Earley. Earley said the restaurant’s unique outdoor space (about 50 percent of the walkway on the posh Bethesda Lane belongs to Redwood) gave ownership the idea to create the event.
This year’s Oktoberfest is Sept. 22, from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Regular admission (day of the event) is $25 and includes a mug and 10 tickets worth $20 of food and drink. A part of the proceeds will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Beer includes selections from Widmer Brothers Brewery, Goose Island Brewery Company, Starr Hill Brewery, Redhook Brewery, Kona Brewing Company and Old Dominion Brewery. There’s also Stella Artois and Shock Top.
Cafe Deluxe, American Tap Room, Vapiano, Luke’s Lobster, Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, Mon Ami Gabi, Mussel Bar, Honest Tea, Capital Teas and, of course, Redwood will offer food.
